The "acting" is great - probably because it's timely and the "actors" can relate to their roles easily (and just to clarify, this means the re-created shots - not the combat footage). "Combat America" is entertaining but it's a bit too much propaganda in a Hollywood production - which, in a way, makes it quite interesting. This was a WWII USA homefront propaganda film but has been converted to a NTSC VHS format. Excellent actual air combat footage! This VHS film should probably be seen after "The Memphis Belle" for maximum enjoyment. Most historians and militaria collectors would like to have this in their film library.
While the film is about 1/2 century old, this particular edition was issued in 2001 on a DVD format.

Some cleaning up of the film seems to have been done but it's difficult with these older films.
